PivotTables have a great tool to split a file into multiple worksheets.
Often you would like to split your main workbook in several worksheet, like in this example where the main data sheet is cut by state.

Then we focus on the top of our pivot table and we will drop the item State.
If you click on the arrow a drop-down menu displays the list of the states, much like a data filter.
Now we will create as many worksheets as there are State in our document. Select in the Pivot Table Tools menu, the Options tab menu and then the sub-menu PivotTable, and finally, the Options sub-sub-menu.
There you click on the arrow just to the right of the word Options and you select the menu “Show Report Filter Pages …”
A window appears asking you with which element you want to create your page. Well, you don’t have the choice because the State is the single choice.
